The Races

Mark your calendar for the 1st annual YQR VetRun held in Regina SK, on the 28th April 2019!  At this time we would like to thank all of you for your patience as we are continuously working on gathering more information and fine tuning the details of the race.  Updates will be steady throughout the coming months.

Races will include a marathon, half-marathon, half-marathon walk, 10 km and 5 km.  The “5 km Vet Walk” will be truly special.  This will be an opportunity to converse, help, learn and ultimately be hand-in-hand with participating young and old Veterans.  We really think it’ll be something special and we hope many of you participate in it.

Registration includes completion medal and post-race food.

 

Stay tuned for more updates on course routes and pictures.

 

Marathon

42.2kms of pure lactic acid building glory.  One of only a few marathon opportunities in Regina SK, this event will take place in the NW part of the city.  Start and finish line are located at the RCMP Depot Drill Hall and  heads east on 11th Ave out of the Depot until you reach the bike path.  Runner's will take a left and follow the bike path towards the Joanne Goulet Golf Course turn-around point aid station at 10.55kms and then head back down the bike path from where they came from to finish 21.1kms at the RCMP Depot.  The marathon is completing this route 2 times.  An interactive route map and or birds eye view of the route is currently in the works.

5 KM VETWALK

This is something special.  We believe the conversation of our Canadian Forces, RCMP and retired Veterans needs to be year round and not just around Remembrance Day.  This event will allow participants to directly walk, converse, learn and ultimately support our Canadian Veterans.  We will be having Veterans, young and old, from the different Veterans branches (Army, Navy, Air Force and RCMP) participating in this event and all of us within the YQR VetRun race organization look forward to this opportunity to host such a special event.  This 5km route will be the same as for this event.

All of us at the YQR VetRun hope to see you out on race day and very much look forward to putting on an amazing event in support of our Canadian Veterans.
